    I tried to watch it once but it quickly turned into a cryfest that should have been settled by someone gettin knocked the **** out. But it didn't... they kept crying about barometric pressure slowing his car unfairly blah blah blah

    lol, I just watched both new episodes too. The show has gotten better as the season moves on, it used to be a run what ya' brung kind of deal which is fun but then everyone cries and requests stupid lenghts like 15-20...at that you might as well give them your ride. Now they seem to be doing a better job at matching up vehicles (except for the honda that got it's as* handed to it tonight).
    The bikes that were on tonight were impressive; street legal too!
    They were much more entertaining since they were close just about every run.

    I dont know if it's fake, but in my opinion it's BS. In my younger street racing days, I got a fast car, you got a fast car, you think you can beat me, bring it on. None of this " give me 15 lengths or " you cant use your nitrous " b.s..
    To me it aint racing, watched it once, thought it sucked.

    Personally, I enjoy the show a lot. I really feel it should be a run what you brung ordeal though. It's almost like they are punishing the person who built a faster car. A few weeks ago was a ricer vs. muscle shootout that was awesome, the ricer asked for 20 lengths and the muscle car team just goes- are you kidding? your trying to gain respect for chinese sh*t and ask for 20 lengths?

    A properly tuned H22A can run low 13s. I know alot of guys that have accords that swap over to the h22. Can be quick with the right driver.

    I dont see why they do the for pinks crap it just brings the show down really. Whatever happened to racing just for your Name and Rep, just to be the fastest in the area. John Milner Style

    You bought it for it's intended purpose - a reliable fuel efficient daily driver.

    If you had bought it as a race car, I'd call you names behind your back :D

    F the BS, strait up race. Both cars start off side by side, none of that BS. Whoever wins, wins.
